Obama’s New Campaign Meme: “Defenders of the Middle Class” and giving them a “Fair Shot”


“Defenders of the Middle Class” and giving them a “Fair Shot”



A Challenge to Progressives:  What does this mean to you?

What would YOU do?

HOW would YOU do it?




Me playing the devil’s advocate……

The What IF’s”

1.  What if giving everyone a fair shot ends up bankrupting corporations or sending jobs overseas?  Where would the money come from then?

2.  What if giving everyone a fair shot required ALL Americans to WORK, be it in a state run factory, a state run farm, etc.  Does this mean an end to government welfare?

Michelle Obama stated during a speech at UCLA on Febrary 18, 2008:

Barack Obama will require you to work. He is going to demand that you shed your cynicism. That you put down your divisions. That you come out of your isolation, that you move out of your comfort zones. That you push yourselves to be better. And that you engage. Barack will never allow you to go back to your lives as usual, uninvolved, uninformed.”  LINK

3.  What if the only way the government can run its state factories or businesses is to add a Value Added Tax (VAT) on ALL consumables (everything except raw food) for TV’s, gas, refrigerators, cars,etc.?  Would Americans be willing to pay, say a VAT tax of 10%, 20%….at what level would it be capped? Obama has already “floated” this out there to pay for Socialized Medicine. LINK

4.  Does a fair shot mean to Obama that Unions will be broken apart so everyone is on a level playing field? A fair shot to a job; what does this mean?

5.  What if a fair shot to Obama means forced abortions? Number of children allowed per family in order to sustain government payouts to workers; or the amount of children per family has direct consequences on their finances.  The greater the population the less the payouts. John Holdren, Obama’s Science CZAR is into population control. Link


What does fair shot really mean to Obama?  What does his “Defense of the Middle Class” actually mean; what are Obama’s REAL goals?

Will Obama list what his true intentions are or will we see more of the bloviated words; just words.


Reiterated here again:


A Challenge to Progressives, yes including YOU Ben:  What does this mean to you?

What would YOU do? HOW would you go about fixing America?



It’s about “defending the middle class” and giving them a “fair shot.”

“This isn’t just about recovering from this recession,” said a senior adviser to Obama, “This is about saving the middle class from a decline that’s been going on for three decades.”

The president’s “Teddy Roosevelt” speech at Osawatomie, KS., earlier this year marked the beginning of his “Defenders of the Middle Class” campaign strategy. You can expect to hear a lot more of this type of rhetoric, especially during his upcoming State of the Union address.

“It’s a much stronger position than where he was before,” said Democratic pollster StanleyGreenberg. Talking about the “state of the middle class” connects with voters in a way that discussing the “state of the recovery” doesn’t, he said.

Not surprisingly, some analysts have labeled this new strategy as “class warfare” and have accused the president of continuing to “duck the nation’s problem of creating jobs.” But despite these criticisms, “Defenders of the Middle Class” is the theme the campaign has settled on and they’re going to stick to it.
